Rod McCall and Martin Kracheel are to attend a workshop on “The Car As An Arena for Gaming” at this year’s ACM MobileHCI conference. They will present their work and conduct a live “mobility game” at the workshop which will illustrate the role of incentives in even small mobility challenges. The work comes from their paper “Reducing Congestion Through Pervasive Gaming” (McCall, Kracheel & Koenig) which won best paper at the workshop. MobileHCI is one of the leading conferences on the human-computer interaction with mobile technology and the team from Luxembourg are delighted to be joining other leading researchers at the workshop who have a special interest in in-car gaming.
The paper forms some of the early work within the recently started I-GEAR project; which is funded by the National Research Fund of Luxembourg.
